Susan McCord

At a local thrift store, I found a original copy of Susan McCord's Henry Ford Museum exhibition catalog.  I was very pleased to find this copy.

Susan McCord (1829-1909) was an Indiana farm wife who had 7 children, loved to garden and quilted for over 50 years. Like other quilters, she drew from her extensive bag of fabric scraps-choosing patterns, colors and techniques to make quilts. But she put all these elements together in ways that were highly original.  As stated from the Henry Ford Museum.
